Myself, Matt B, Frank & Leevan tackled the 2010 Longmynd Hike with only Paul having completed it in previous years. It was an early start for Paul and Matt with a drive from Reading to Church Stretton in the morning although an overpriced American Breakfast and a warm drink at The Little Chef broke the journey up. Frank and Leevan were slightly more rested having rented a cottage for the weekend.
Paul and Matt arrived at the Technology School which was to be the base of operations for the weekend and passed the kit check which was run in the usual efficient style before taking part in a science study and then packed their kit bags and had some lunch before the start of the event. Frank and Leevan arrived a short while later and checked in.
